Among the other MANY wonderful benefits yoga has to offer (previous post on that), yoga helps with digestion!! Yes, oh yes, it does.
Yoga helps detoxify the body, massages your internal organs, and, gets things moving again so to speak by stimulating the body. Ever hear that the gut is your "second brain"? Well because yoga helps to relieve mental stress that may be impacting your physical health, such as in constant “fight or flight” mode due to anxiety, your body is unable to relax and digest properly. By practicing yoga poses, you’ll get everything flowing in harmony again, so you can get back to your day with a calm mind and a happy tummy.
Yoga poses like twists, which help detoxify the body. And while you are twisting, you are reducing blood flow to the digestive organs, so when you release, you're letting in "new" blood to the digestive organs!; forward folds, which help massage the internal organs; and inversions, which help boost circulation and stimulate the abdominal muscles. Be sure to breathe deeply throughout the entire practice, as this will help the digestive process too. Hold each pose for 30 seconds. @gethealthyu
